Jan Calabek: To the Delight of Bees, Poets and Botanists

Jan Calábek ku potěše včel, básníků a botaniků

A portrait of plant physiologist and science cinematography pioneer Jan Calábek (1903-1992) through moments from longitudinal recordings and the testimonies of his son, his student, a film editor and a film scientist. Calábek’s plants provide an unusual aesthetic experience of a moving picture from the plant microworld otherwise inaccessible to the human eye.
